You could make more power with other components. I wouldn't use the Edelbrock cam or carb.

Actually the Edelbrock combination described above was designed to work together and will produce more power in most cases than individually selected components. If you're not going to tear into the short block (other than to replace the cam) the Edelbrock system should work just fine and the carb (basically a Carter AFB) is easy to adjust and doesn't require the constant tinkering like their Holley counterparts.

I would check their web site for info on horsepower gains and the recommended setup for your engine.

I agree with centerline. Edelbrock isn't my favorite, but their kits are tested and proven to make a certain amount of HP. And like Center said, edelbrock/carter carbs or a great out of the box carbs with very little to no adjustments needed to run great.
